Actually, we *do* require something past Apache 2.0.35. There was a change
to mod_dav that inserted another member into the dav_provider structure. We
were totally compatible with that change (the compiler would automatically
insert a NULL), but Sander went and explicitly added the NULL :-)

[ which means, that we now *require* post-2.0.35 ]

I expect there will be other, similar changes in the mod_dav interface to
its provider which will cause us to require a newer version of Apache.
Hopefully, it will be stable, but I'm not going to make guarantees.

It is also quite reasonable to expect that we're going to want to require a
later version of Apache to pick up some bug fixes.

Cheers,
